Manu Tuilagi should never have been allowed to play schoolboy rugby

We’ve unearthed explosive footage of a young Manu Tuilagi as he terrorised schoolboys in a Vase final at Twickenham.

The incredible video shows John Cleveland College vs Hampton School in the final of the Daily Mail Schools competition from way back in 2009.

I think it’s fair to say – watching this felt like witnessing a man against boys.

The original video was posted on Youtube in 2012 with dozens of fans commenting on who exactly was this behemoth on the wing who already looked the size of most test level players.

As the video rolls on, we see 17-year-old Tuilagi mercilessly wrecking havoc on the Hampton School defence – scoring a number of tries.

We watch as the Sale Sharks man, with 14 on his back, goes on to score several tries as he swats away defender after hapless defender.

It makes you wonder what must have been going through those schoolboy’s minds when they saw the future England and Lions international lining up against them on that sunny Spring day.

Watch the full explosive highlights of the young Manu Tuilagi in the video below.
